    I cannot honestly say I injured MYSELF while gaming. Just other people.

    One time I got pissed and I threw my control at my couch and it bounced back and hit me in the nuts.

    I hate when that happened.

    One time in D2, a trade went VERY wrong. Very very wrong. I lost a lot of things to a hack...I punched the wooden chair I was sitting on so hard I think I broke a finger.
    After I was done screaming and swearing and holding my broken fingers I said, I have to quit.

    After going through a slight DDR craze (I played for about three hours every day) I suppose my legs were not used to being suddenly active (bite me, it's winter) and I kept getting horrible, horrible, horrible cramps in my calves and feet. >_< I guess that counts as injury, because I also hurt my big toe and the cramps hurt like hell.

    Lwek stole this poll and all of the poll options in it from www.gamefaqs.com.

    Here is the exact same poll which was made on gamefaqs 3 days ago or so before Lwek's copy of it.
    http://www.gamefaqs.com/poll/index.html?poll=2227



    Lwek if you cannot come up with original ideas foir polls why don't you give gredit where credit is due.

    I didn't know I had to give credits for polls. Should I give credit to Juliet for "O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo" and every other god damn quotes or mottos? PM me if you have a problem with my polls and you will most likely get the response back, "Why don't you try to think of poll questions?"

    If sore hands and wrists count, then GunZ killed them.

    [glow=black]I thought you were permanently leaving BF, quite some time ago? Or did you just decide to finally turn off the "Invisible" option?[/glow]
